Living Vicky's mission empowers young women to overcome negative Millennial stereotypes in the workplace. We will do this by offering a curriculum based program and offer free travel as an incentive for completing the program.
Living Vicky is a non-profit that provides online and in-person curriculum and mentoring which prepares young women transitioning from high school to whatever comes next.
Curriculum includes a variety of practical life courses designed to build self-confidence and critical thinking skills, using free travel to incentivize active participation in the course. To ensure mastery of essential skills, instruction uses a student-centered, collaborative style, with frequent feedback and opportunities for improvement, perfectly suited for Millennial participants.
Living Vicky also provides workshops to firms who wish to leverage positive aspects of the Millennial Generation (GenY):
Living Vicky's Pilot Program kicks off in the spring of 2014 for 20 young women, ages 18 - 20, from the DC metro area. At the end of the three month pilot, participants who have successfully completed their initial courses, earn an excursion to New York City.

Living Vicky has given me the opportunity to learn skills related to my degree (while working full-time) AND give back. Living Vicky is making great strides towards empowering young women and other Millennials with the resources they will need to succeed. I hope that you will consider joining our great team of volunteers!

Hi everyone! I'm the Founder & Executive Director of Living Vicky. I wanted to share why I love working with my team, and see if you'd be interested in sharing our experience, too.
At any given time, we have 10 to 30 volunteers. We come in all shapes, sizes, colors, backgrounds and interests. The two things we have in common are our passion for our mission, and our core values. In other words, how we treat each other.
We have an amazing infrastructure already in place, but many opportunities for creative leadership. We work on a foundation of collaboration and empowerment.
If this sounds good to you, let us know, and we'll find a role that motivates and engages you!
